Abstract

The goals of reconstructing deformities of the face acquired secondary to skin tumors include optimizing donor-site aesthetics and reconstructing the area with similar types of tissue when possible. Multiple skin-cancer defects are often seen by the plastic surgeon and complicate the reconstruction, requiring more than one flap or skin graft. A case analysis of an innovative application of the nasolabial flap for reconstruction of a simultaneous medial cheek and alar-base nasal defect is presented. Concepts in nasal reconstruction are reviewed, and the authors' approach to alar reconstruction is presented.
